    firmware: allow firmware files to be built into kernel image · 5658c769
    David Woodhouse authored
    Some drivers have their own hacks to bypass the kernel's firmware loader
    and build their firmware into the kernel; this renders those unnecessary.
    
    Other drivers don't use the firmware loader at all, because they always
    want the firmware to be available. This allows them to start using the
    firmware loader.
    
    A third set of drivers already use the firmware loader, but can't be
    used without help from userspace, which sometimes requires an initrd.
    This allows them to work in a static kernel.
